Side by Side by Sondheim



今晚拖了一个不情不愿的S同学去附近的 Signature Theater 看这一出音乐剧 --- 实际上不是剧,而是三十首 Sondheim 的歌曲编在一起的汇总表演,其中还包括了几首Sondheim作词,Leonard Bernstein, Mary Rogers作曲的歌。

只有三个演员连续不断地唱了两个钟头。其中的男演员声音比较弱,另外两个女演员还不错。Sondheim 的歌本来就难唱得要死。不过,管他呢,只要是 Sondheim 我就不可能不喜欢。

里面选的歌曲都是Sondheim的早期作品,好些是 Company 里的,还有几首 Follies 里的以前也听过。说起来我还挺喜欢西区故事里现代而不协调的旋律的。另外有两首过去没听过的,尤其是 Everybody Says Don't (from Anyone Can Whistle),又是一下子打中我的心坎 ...

正在考虑买下 A Collector's Sondheim 这套合集。
